TelephoneTelefonica have reacted to the global crisis by charging for services that in the past were free.

The company presided by César Alierta has announced that it will charge clients 50 cents per call for the identification of callers on their home telephones. The new charge will commence Oct this year and will cover all of Telefonica’s 6 million clients across Spain.

Telefonica rather sheepishly admitted that the caller identification service was introduced during 2001 as a “promotion” and the offer had to come to an end “sooner or later”.

If you have the service and want to cancel you will need to inform Telefonica directly.
